Not recommend to those really want to catch big fish bros. Just catch a few small fish which you can catch the same size fish at mai kao beach. Wasting time and wasting money

Having previously had one less than perfect fishing trip from Chalong I asked tour agency in Patong a lot of questions, and was expecting similar format, troll in morning, swim and bottom fish with spinning rods after lunch. Concern started on hotel pick ups when I saw how many anglers being picked up, was sure too many for trolling posts which proved the case. Relieved somewhat when some cancelled at last minute and were not picked up. Got to pier, desk set up with spinning rods. Explained I was left handed and would need reel handle switched to left hand. Then told we would be using hand lines, not rods. Asked if I could rent rod, could not. Others in group equally surprised as like me had been told all rods would be suppled, nothing about handlines. Only person still wanting to fish had his own rod. This was re-inforced when established too many anglers for trolling positions so would have to rotate. Representative did try and contact agencies, but at 2 minutes past planned departure time told boat was leaving with one angler. Then transport bus left without notice leaving us all stranded at pier. Handline fishing is really hard work, particularly if have decent sized fish on, lady angler did not think could do. Having paid 500 tbt to get back to hotel I looked in vain on brochure and company web site for any photo showing handlines, not one. I rejected other trips because brochure clearly stated handlines used, maybe why theirs did not. My advice, only book a fishing trip on personal recommendation. Personally after 4 trips in Thailand ranging from down right awful to disappointing I may never fish here again. If i do I will wait for boats to return to dock and ask customers how it went.

Were out with them in the join-in and private boat 6 times in 2 weeks together with my friend Hans. Every single trip was worth its money. We caught pretty good fishes like king, barracuda, tuna, grouper, JT and many others. Crew were very friendly and they know the area to and around Kho Racha Islands very well. Snorqueling is a nice add-on, but fishing is the main topic. Lunch tasty and ice-cold drinks all the time. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to take one day off the beach.

Boat left the quay with 9 on board. After 90 mins we stopped for 2 hours of hand lining with 80lb mono and 2 baited hooks catching small fish. This was pot luck as you could not feel the bites. Crew spoke no English so I was showing 3 people what to do. Had lunch on the boat which consisted of a fish stew from what we had caught (no fish was over 150g). Heads and all. Chicken wings, veg dish, chicken dish, and rice. Pineapple and wartermelon to follow. Chance look at the galley revealed that it was a little cluttered to say the least. Stopped for snorkalling and swimming. Back to trolling. All went sunbathing or sleeping. Hour later we hit some small fish (200g) on feathers (?). 9 in all. Back to quay by 17.00. The kit was not suitable for this kind of fishing. Hand lines, heavy fish gear. This needs a re-think by somebody who knows what they are doing otherwise these poor reviews will keep coming. I know the "fishing not catching" debate, but please get the gear right and have somebody to teach novices. It's not that difficult. Heavy handlines and heavy trolling gear on feathers are not right. This gives fishing a bad name. Hence my marking. Skipper never left the wheelhouse. That gives a clue!

My husband and I took this trip on December 11, 2018. Transportation was provided to and from our hotel- the driver was prompt. The staff on the boat was extremely polite, attentive and spoke English well. There were about 5 staff members for 14 guests. (Not all were fishing.) When you enter the boat your are asked to draw a card, this is used to determine the order of reeling in the fish. I was #5 and my husband was #10. I thought that was a great idea so that we were able to take photos of each other during our turn. However, being that there were 14 people on our tour (12 who were fishing) we were only able to reel in fish one time. I was lucky enough to catch two tunas on one line. Numbers 1&2 were able to go again on the way back.You start out trolling on your way to lunch, break for lunch, hand line and the troll on the way back. We didn't have any luck hand lining, but other individuals did. While the staff was prepping lunch we were able to snorkel and swim. The lunch was simple but nice and consisted of fried rice, fried chicken, raw tuna that we had caught, and cooked tuna that we had caught. I am not keen on tuna, so I was glad that there was an option for me at lunch. My husband, however, was happy with fresh caught tuna. We have been on several fishing tours and fish independently on our own. For the price that we paid we were content, however, if we could do it again we would book a private fishing tour.
